The world has been improving technology for centuries. You don’t have to put your ideas on paper; you could put your ideas on the computer/laptop and your cell phone.
So many trees, so much paper! Not only are trees being used to make paper, they are also our life supply of air. Everyone really needs to think how trees help us everyday besides using them for paper. Trees give off oxygen, which living things need in order to survive. We are killing them everyday.
When you’re at work, at school or at home, how much paper do you use and how much paper are you given? - Don’t lie! At work, you are given loads of paper work, it gives you a headache. At school, its papers galore, everyday. At home is not so bad, but the children using paper for homework, and printing out any little thing.
